Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

I was contacted a while back by Vegan Cuts who asked if I'd like to try their Beauty Box.  Oh course I said, yes please I'd love to!

Vegan cuts was founded by couple John and Jill who see Veganism as the way to an abundant life.  They and their team scour the web, festivals and stores for the best plant based foods, vegan clothing, shoes, accessories, body care and every day items which you can pick up in the online shop.  You can also sign up for a snack box - see this here.

I was sent the February Beauty Box* ($19.95 per month with $15 shipping costs - this is approximately £20.95).

"Discover cruelty free brands without committing to full-size products or prices".

Every month the box includes 4-7 items ranging from cosmetics to skincare. There will be a mix of full sizes and sample sizes and all are Vegan and Cruelty Free.  There is a retail value of $35 or more per box.


I was sent the February box "Love is in the Air"

Medusa's Make-up Lipstick in shade Baroque (full size $12) - this is a really pretty shade and is supermoisturising on the lips. A vegan lipstick - my very first!  Fuller review to follow.

Molly Rose Pickles & Ice Cream Lip Balm .15oz (full size $5) - the quirkiest beauty product I've ever tried. This actually smells and tastes just like dill pickle! "Perfect for expectant mother's late night cravings...or for anyone craving this herbal sweet treat". Packed full of nourishing oils and butters. I'm fancying trying Roses & Chocolate (although this is flavour of the month and can only be bought up until today). Check out the website for interesting butters, balms and scrubs.

Yarok Feed your Do (sample pot) - huge Yarok fan. This is a whipped hair paste made of organic botanicals including lemon peel and peppermint. Can be used in many ways - to smooth frizz after blow drying, apply to wet hair to shape frizz free curls, for hold and volume apply to roots and will tame flyaway hairs.  Looking forward to trying this out. 

Chandler Farm Natural Lavender Hand Cream 88.7ml (full size $8.99) - a luxurious hand cream which keeps hands soft and smooth and lightly scented with Lavender.  Palm oil free. Rich in natural ingredients. This smells lovely and deeply moisturises the hands.

Greenbody Handcrafted Tea Tree & Rosemary Deodorant (sample size) - a natural deodorant which smells gorgeous! Always on the lookout to find the perfect natural deodorant so looking forward to trying this out.

Box bonus! Birthed by Earth all Natural Soy Wax Tealight Candle - with 4 hours burn time. This smells beautiful and looking forward to lighting it.

Thanks so much Vegan Cuts. I love February's box and once my spending ban is over I'll definitely be signing up!

  13. I just started subbing to this box, but with the shipping it's A LITTLE on the expensive side. I do love vegan products though so I am willing to pay a little bit extra sometimes. That hand cream was my favourite item!
